Report: Suns to hire former Washington coach Mike Hopkins

Mike Hopkins

Former University of Washington head coach Mike Hopkins is joining the Phoenix Suns as an assistant coach, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Hopkins, 54, was a two-time Pac-12 Coach of the Year and compiled a record of 118-106 over seven seasons with the Huskies from 2017-24. He took Washington to the NCAA Tournament in 2019.

Hopkins will join new Suns coach Mike Budenholzer’s staff, which also reportedly includes David Fizdale and Chad Forcier.

Washington announced on March 8 that Hopkins would not be returning for the 2024-25 season. The program hired Danny Sprinkle later that month.

Hopkins played for coach Jim Boeheim at Syracuse for four seasons from 1989-93 before joining his staff as an assistant in 1995. Hopkins was the Orange’s interim coach for nine games in 2015-16, going 4-5 during a suspension for Boeheim.
